No matter how much you work out or how well you eat, you may struggle with stubborn pockets of fat that fail to respond to your efforts. But with advances in aesthetic technology, you can get rid of those pockets of fat without surgery or downtime. Heights Dermatology uses CoolSculpting® to freeze away stubborn fat and improve your body shape. To find out more about CoolSculping, call the office in Houston, Rosenberg, Lake Jackson, Portland, Corpus Christi, Palacios, Columbus, Gonzales, Dallas, Mansfield, Beaumont, Bay City, New Braunfels, or San Antonio, Texas, or schedule a consultation online today.

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a nonsurgical body contouring treatment that uses innovative freezing technology to get rid of the unwanted fat under your skin. The body contouring device applies targeted cooling to your trouble spots, freezing and destroying the fat cells without damaging any other cells or tissue.

Once the fat cells are destroyed, your body removes them from the area. CoolSculpting can reduce fat cells by as much as 25% in the treatment area.*

Heights Dermatology uses CoolSculpting to treat many areas of the body that like to hold on to fat, such as your:

  • Upper arms
  • Abdomen and waist
  • Thighs and buttocks
  • Back fat

They also use CoolSculpting to eliminate the stubborn pocket of fat under your chin and along your jawline, known as submental fat. CoolSculpting tightens the remaining skin in this area.

Am I a candidate for CoolSculpting?

Schedule a CoolSculpting consultation at Heights Dermatology to see if you’re a candidate for the nonsurgical body sculpting treatment. Though CoolSculpting eliminates fat from your body, it’s not a weight-loss procedure.

CoolSculpting works best on people who are at or close to their goal weight but still struggle with stubborn pockets of fat. 

What can I expect during CoolSculpting?

Heights Dermatology takes a holistic approach to care and customizes your CoolSculpting treatments to match your needs. At your consultation, they review what you can expect during your treatment sessions. 

However, CoolSculping is a quick, noninvasive treatment that takes less than an hour and requires no downtime. While you sit comfortably in the treatment chair, your provider places the CoolSculpting applicator on the parts of your body undergoing fat reduction.

Initially, you may feel a rush of cold and tugging and pulling. However, these sensations go away as the area numbs. 

Once the treatment is complete, your provider massages the area to break up the fat cells to improve removal so you get better results.

When can I expect to see results from CoolSculpting?

It takes some time for your body to remove the destroyed fat cells, but you should see improvements in your shape about a month after your session. Final results take about six months.

Once the fat cells are gone, they don’t come back. To maintain your CoolSculpting results, Heights Dermatology recommends you eat a balanced diet and engage in regular physical activity to maintain your weight.
